House of Payne: Are Friday’s the Last Episodes? [spoiler]

House of Payne last episodeIn one of last Friday’s episodes of Tyler Perry’s House of Payne, titled “God Bless the Paynes,” Calvin (Lance Gross) was shot by the man who’d earlier harassed Miranda (Keshia Knight Pulliam). He’s rushed to the hospital but his fate is unknown.

We’ve received a few emails from readers who believe that next week’s episodes will be the end of the series and the death of Calvin. While House of Payne has been “cancelled,” there are a lot more episodes still to come.

In April 2011, TBS announced that they were ending the venerable sitcom, in part to make way for Tyler Perry’s For Better or Worse. At that time, we understood the final episode total for House of Payne to be 220 installments.

In late September, Perry posted on his Facebook page that TBS had ordered 42 more episodes. In December, the cast and crew had a wrap party that celebrated the completion of 254 episodes. It’s unclear if they’ll be going back into production now that the holidays are over but, based on the numbers we have, it seems like they still have at least eight more installments to make.

In the meantime, we do know that this Friday’s episodes of House of Payne aren’t the last. Two new episodes will air each Friday night for the next six weeks. Episodes 223 and 224 will air on February 17th and that will leave about 30 episodes left in the series.

In the meantime, you should know that Calvin does not die from his gunshot wounds. He lives and, at least in the next couple episodes, has to worry about paying his hospital bills because he doesn’t have insurance.

What do you think? Are you a fan of House of Payne? Are you glad to know there are more episodes on the way?

Im trying to figure out how to watch all the “house of Payne” episodes any suggestions


Michael April 3, 2014 at 9:23 am

i wish calvin and miranda would just break up already
I can’t stand hearing her bitch at him anymore

my god she never lets up

anyways, I think the only thing the show really didn’t do well was give a balanced perspective about drug addition. What about the sort of unjust treatment drug addicts get in society like jail when they should be given help. They could have easily coverd that with janine. It would have created balance if there was an episode where she was facing jail over her addictions and the family had to fight to get her help instead. something like that. It would have widened the target audience for the show too and made it look incredibly forward thinking. Also, if you acknowledge these sorts of injustices, you end up being able to reach a lot more people who DO need help rather than turn them off of the show.
It seems to me that an episode covering that would tie those loose ends together.

Just want to say keep them coming really enjoy them. That family time

Meet the Browns, House of Payne, Haves and Have Nots are reputable family shows. Highly restricted sexual content, virtually no profanity, projecting positive messages to youth to focus on family, social responsibility, education, goal setting, community service. The shows have wholesome messages of inspiration and appropriate viewing for the entire family. The shows are a model for how prime-time TV shows can be clean comedy and family friendly. The shows are labeled “MUST KEEP”.

Please do not end the Paynes TV show, this show is loved world wide, I rush home everyday just to watch the paynes. The show that ended with Miranda wanting a Divorce and saying she does not love him anymore on their Anniversary, please start from there an continue on with more of this wonderful show. You are a Brilliant young man I know you can do it. GOD HAS TRULY BLESSED YOU. Please do not leave us hanging.


Gina March 19, 2014 at 7:28 pm

I totally agree please don’t end this show.

All viewers who enjoy House of Payne & Meet the Browns. PLS PLS write the TV affiliate stations & House of Payne show advertisement sponsors requesting the show be continued. Buy the products that are advertised during the show. There are so many youth including families are inspired, mentored and helped by the shows. It is so much more than wholesome family friendly comedy. The show depicts real life issues, fresh approach on how to deal with life’s issues. The show brings awareness to other humanitarian causes such as Autism, Diabetes, Child Abuse, Bullying, and the list goes on. We need to champion to keep these type shows ON THE AIR especially when there are so many other shows that have excess of profanity, high level sexual content, violence, etc. Let’s step up to keep HOP and MTB on the air.
